In conjunction with the international Israeli Apartheid Week (http://www.apartheidweek.org), UC Berkeley Students for Justice in Palestine is pleased to announce the following event:
"Apartheid and the Youth of Palestine" closing event. Featuring Ziad Abbas Co-Director of Ibdaa' Cultural Center (Dheisheh Refugee Camp, Bethlehem) and Journalist Nora Barrows-Friedman.

Where do we go from here? This event, featuring two dedicated individuals who will talk about their experiences working with Palestinian youth living under Occupation. They will provide their visions of what a just future for these youth and their communities will look like and will provide inspiration of what we can do here, in the U.S., to organize and work for peace AND justice in Israel/Palestine. Ziad Abbas, journalist and community organizer, is a recognized grassroots leader and has traveled throughout the world, as a representative and advocate for the rights of his people, bringing special attention to the issue of Right of Return for Palestinian refugees.
